As you said though, the top ten is one person’s list, while the top 100 is based off seven people putting their top 150 together, then averaging them out. There are bound to be differences.
The top 100 will also rank players closer to the majors higher if they are close in comparison, while top ten rankings take long-term potential into account when comparing players. Meaning, If someone thought Hanson and Heredia both had similar value, then Hanson would be ranked higher.

I don’t know why the Pirates always seem to have this fate instead of having one of the BA experts doing their list.

Perotto really did a hatchet piece this year spending his entire word limit rehashing hoka hey and bashing the front office. He didn’t even discuss the top 10 system’s prospects.

IMO catchers are underrated because their catching is not what people are looking at when grading them out, concentrating far too much on offense with a catcher is wrong IMO.
If anyone is looking for a breakout player this year in the Pirate system Sanchez might be the guy.
As far as the top 100 is concerned I don’t put a lot of stock in what a lot of publications say about the Pirate system. If you listen to a supposed sports analyst talk on the radio about the Pirates it seems that all they know about the Pirates is they have Cole, Taillon and McCutchen, after that they don’t have much of a clue.
